No Suck Fest: Damn the Man! Save the Weekly!
We’d be stupid not to promote a show that would help us save our own asses. Even though we only kind of like our jobs sometimes (just kidding!). Thanks to the young bunch who brings us the punky No Suck Fest, you get to see Bad Kids, Animal Mother, Move Minor Standard and The Blue Ribbons, all for a small donation. Our publisher asked the people for help. NSF responded. Who says kids don’t listen these days?
30 Seconds to Mars
I will love you forever, Jordan Catalano! I don’t care that you once looked like Criss Angel. XOXO
Member of Oakland’s Crown City Rockers. ’Nuff said.
Is age 28 considered Lil? Well, whatever. Eyelid tats plus taking 74th place in the 2010 Forbes Celebrity 100 list with $20 million per year means the rapper really can retire at 35.
For the Fallen Dreams plus tons of local bands make for 40 bands on three stages.

Mad Professor, a pioneer of British reggae, headlines this show.
The California punk band has been together for nearly 15 years and are still a bunch of bastards. Well, at least lead singer Gordy Carbone was once the “unknown bastard” in Lars Frederiksen & The Bastards.
The hip-hop producer and DJ has worked with Jean Grae and Mary J. Blige. Not only that, but he’s also taught academic hip-hop courses at North Carolina Central University and Duke University. Catch him in Honolulu while he promotes his newest album, The Wonder Years.
Fans of this year’s album Rolling Papers will sure feel ablaze at this rapper’s show.

Point Panic Music Festival
Sublime with Rome headlines this show that also features Pepper, Iration and Dub Trio. It’ll be so irie you might not even be in your own body during the show.
How about REO Family SUV or REO Wheelchair Caravan? No matter, Hi Infidelity fans will still die just as hard now as they did in 1980.
Does he still never want to fall in love? Oh, wicked games.
Steve Miller Band
For a dude with such a boring name, he sure has a cool band that still has as much psychedelic flower power as it did during the Summer of Love.
